The theater site is being redesigned. Still showing first run movies, however.

The theatre site has been redesigned and it is now a discount theatre after the opening of the Smithfield Outlet Mall Cinemas 10 in 2004.

The Howell is showing second-run features these days.
And is the ONLY theatre that is in business in Downtown Smithfield.

Actually HP HOWELL built the theater, Rudy’s father. Rudy took over and owned it until 1999. Mickey Buffalo owned it until 2009. The Kirkman’s owned it until 2017, which is when I bought it.
